Union Island


Union Island is part of the multi-island state of St Vincent and the Grenadines. Due to its volcanic silhouette, it is also called the Tahiti of the West Indies. The island is approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile wide, surrounded by crystal clear waters and other islets like Tobago Cays and Palm Island. The history of this island is rooted in its age-old traditions such as boat building, fishing and whaling. Today, it provides a safe bay for yachties and travelers in search of the offbeat Caribbean.

    wow! the water is such an amazing color and the white sails a nice contrast. An idyllic spot. If only? I didn’t know it was called the Tahiti of the West Indies until I read your article. thanks.
